Russian Federation forces among dozens dead in IS east Syria attacks

World       by Dawood Rehman | Published

At least 26 Syrian troops and nine Russian fighters lost their lives in an attack conducted by the Islamic State (IS) in Syria's eastern desert earlier this week, a monitor said on Sunday, May 27, AFP reported.

Roughly 40 United States commandos held off about 500 forces loyal to the Syrian government - including Russian mercenaries - in an intense firefight in early February, The New York Times reports.

Despite the Syrian forces, the Russian mercenaries participated in the battle, particularly; it is most likely to be the fighters of the Wagner Group known as the power of Russia's government that distracts attention from the connection of the Kremlin and some particular objectives.

On October 3, 2017, Russia's Defense Ministry denied that two Russian soldiers had been captured by the Daesh Takfiri terrorists in Syria.

The fighting erupted after several groups of rebels attacked an artillery battery of the Syrian army, the Russian Defence Ministry said.

The Russian Defense Ministry is claiming four Russian troops were killed in the incident.

According to him, the remaining 26 of the dead were in the forces controlled by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The fighting lasted about an hour, resulting in the deaths of 43 IS fighters and in the destruction of six all-terrain vehicles, the report said.

The Syrian government, backed by Russian and Iranian military, now controls most of central Syria, including Aleppo. Two died on the spot and two soldiers of the Russian Federation has died in hospital from his injuries.

In the same area, Isis fighters stormed three Syrian army checkpoints, killing eight soldiers and capturing five others, the group said.

"Russia's armed forces and the Syrian army have defeated the most battle-hardened group of worldwide terrorists", Putin said.
